The anti-5G Faraday cage for the router (exists)

The anti-5G Faraday cage for the router (exists)
We will try to report the news in a completely objective and neutral way: anti-5G Faraday cages for routers are on sale online. That's all. The editorial staff of Gizmodo reported it first after sharing some tweets about it.

The Faraday cage that protects the router from 5G

It is not known what the actual usefulness of the devices, considering that routers do not emit 5G signal. The newspaper defines the advertisements as "scams" without too many words, packaged to attract the attention of those who perhaps making confusion between 5 GHz and 5G and fearing (undocumented) health risks related to the new generation mobile networks want to protect himself and those around him.

So apparently putting Faraday cages around routers has become a thing for the 5g conspiracy nuts and there are companies out there ready to cash in.

My sides are in orbit.

On the Italian version of the e-commerce we found the same identical products, of the same brand, but without any reference to 5G, offered with prices indicatively between 150 and 200 euros. We close with the translation of the speech by Avi Greengart, president and analyst of Techsponential, interviewed by the editorial staff of Gizmodo on the subject.

There seems to be a convergence between technical ignorance and conspiracy theories. 5GHz is not the same as 5G cellular networks. Putting a router in a Faraday cage, assuming it is well built, prevents it from functioning properly. It doesn't protect you from anything and even if it did it wouldn't be any more effective than turning off specific bands from the settings or just turning it off. It's a box that blocks WiFi. It works in direct proportion to what makes the quality of the Wifi network worse. There is no magical "EMF wave" that can block other than the WiFi you are trying to use. If you are worried about wireless signals, buy a switch and use Ethernet connections.
